#Cwtchfest2017 Spotlight -The Cwtch Workshops

Good morning Cwtchers!

Ahead of our next event on the 9th April 2017 in the stunning St Fagans we have our gorgeous Cwtch Workshops that are entering their third year and forth event by showing you what we got up to in Septembers #Cwtchfest2016 in St Fagans.

Over the weeks we have been trying to explain what makes our events a little different and the Cwtch Workshops are an essential part of this difference.

Set in Stretch event’s beautiful stretch tent, which allows you to feel part of the festival whilst experiencing some fascinating and enjoyable workshops.  Like a Gin masterclass that was offered by Cardiff’s very own secret cocktail bar The Dead Canary– What is there not to LOVE!

One of the many questions brides question themselves when looking at costs is could I do flowers myself and Eva from The Flowerhive offers a workshop that allows you to have a hands on experience.   Our Cwtchfest couples have LOVED her floral workshops.

In order to offer a different kind of event we like to attract like minded businesses and offer them support through our lovely blog so they get more than just a stand when they attend our events.

We hope (and so far its worked) that because they get so much from our events and because they are MEGA lovely people they plough their efforts into ensuring you get the most from the day.  We work with 100’s of businesses throughout the year and it is impossible to name them all in one post but from the bottom of our hearts WE LOVE YOU GUYS!

Here are our first Cwtchfesters through the door in September- at the start on the left and the end of the day on the right.  Goodybag in hand, they had received hair and make up trial, attended workshops including one on making buttonholes with the lovely Eva from The Flowerhive, sampled cocktails, listened to live music in the field whilst having lunch and were just about to get a free henna tattoo from the talented Hennavative.  They loved the entire day!!

We also wanted to showcase some outstanding Welsh wedding venues and it does not get more welsh than St Fagans National History Museum.  Our very own Lindsey got married here so it holds a special place in all our hearts and holds a lot of nostalgic memories for many.  Just look at what this stunning venue has to offer…
